Just wondering if anyone know of palms that are good for heart of palm
production that can be grown in zone 8.  I know that the common palmettos
are edible but grow very slowly.  While on the topic, anyone have any
recommendations for edible fruiting palms as well?  There are a lot of
trees around here that drop really sweet yellow fruit, but I'm not sure if
they are safe or good for eating--any thoughts?

Thanks and happy holidays,
